Has anyone installed an intercooler on the A5?

Seems like a good idea as long as one can be fitted in

it is a good idea, only if you get it tuned/remapped after fitted, as your current setup has been tuned for the OEM size intercooler, if you go for a bigger one, the turbo lag may be significant due to the air mass being sucked and pushed through, therefore a map/tune can be doe to adjust to that of your new intercooler to avoid turbo lag
